I suppose I felt sort of neutral about Britney, I didn't want to be mean to her while she's all troubled. But I persevered and tried to 'take her somewhere' in my drawings, because she's still fascinating to me in moments. Done these sporadically over past few weeks.
Pretty photoshoot photoshop Britney is a different creature to out on the town wig buying smudgy eyeliner sad trashy Britney. But she can still be interesting. It's like trying to capture the creature that they were aiming for, rather than a whole person.
But she has seemed more like a real person in recent times, if a somewhat messed up one.
I never want to be cruel in my drawings, just honest about what I see, or inventive with the things I can see.
It's hard not to give caricatured Britney huge eyes and a wide head to accomodate how far apart they are.
I used to draw britney back in '99, next to Pikachu. Now she likes to go to strip clubs and have people take pictures of her bottom.
She still scrubs up well.
Drawing her now is like drawing an elusive sort of emptiness. I hope she'll be alright in the end.
